An all-too-brief teaser has arrived for "Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt," the upcoming anime adaptation of the manga by Yasuo Ohtagaki. According to Anime News Network, the teaser debuted during the limited theatrical run of "Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin," Vol. 2.
The anime, produced by "Gundam" and "Cowboy Bebop" studio Sunrise Inc., takes place at the same time as "Mobile Suit Gundam," during the One Year War. It centers on Earth Federation soldier Io Flemming as he battles the Principality of Zeon's best sniper, Daryl Lorenz. A promo image released earlier this week of the two characters and their mobile suits is accompanied by the tag line, "The two are fated to kill each other."
There are no details yet on the anime's format or release date.
